The golden age of gaming is preserved inside an Atlanta bar, where Donkey Kong and Mortal Kombat battle for video game supremacy and your quarters.

From a pinball arcade in Washington, to the Joystick Bar in Georgia, old school arcade games are being brought back to life for love - and profit.

But where do these old games come from? Meet Michael Rich.

He started restoring games in 2011 while recuperating from a car accident. The hobby turned into a career.

The games get their own second life, giving patrons an alternative to playing games alone on their smartphones.

And this arcade gaming revival allows the next generation to discover the joys and joysticks of the classics.
